Topic - calculating distance over hills

buzby - on 20 Apr 2012
considering the years ive spent in the hills im a bit embarrased to ask this but here goes.
how to you calculate distance to travel from a to b when hills or mountains are in between for example.
if the distance as the crow flies between two points on a map was 10 miles but two mountains were in between at say around 4000 feet and you walked over both the total distance travelled is going to be more than 10 miles.
i appreciate you can take account of the fact that the route would not be in a straight line but how do you take in to account gains and drops in height.
I know im going to get the mick taken but id like to know anyway cheers.
